Amaz Leaves Archon for NRG, Puts Archon’s Future Further into Question

Popular Hearthstone competitor, streamer, and Team Archon owner Amaz will compete under NRG, putting Archon's role as a team into further question.

Archon may be hitting the “well played” emote soon, beforeconceding to bigger teams in the competitive realm ofHearthstone.

Team Archon’s owner Jason “Amaz” Chan, one of Hearthstone’s most popularstreamers, tournament hosters, and competitors, has joined TeamNRG, NRG announced Tuesday.

In thefull announcement made by NRG, Amaz expressed his excitementfor joining NRG, which he described as one of the “passionate teamsin this community.”

Amazhas announced on his Facebook page that he will be doing an”AMA” on his Twitch stream at 8 a.m. PDT to follow up the recentmove, with questions coming through comments on his Facebookpost.

While Archon’s future as a competitive team is seemingly over -their only competitor has been Amnesiac and other popular players,such as Firebat, have left the team – it could still live as astreaming team or banner for hosting tournaments.

This theory comes from an interesting point in Amaz’sstatement, that being NRG co-owner Andy Miller taking an interestin Amaz’s current projects. Specifically, Amaz said, “He (AndyMiller) expressed interest in the projects I’m pursuing inHearthstone, and it’s always nice to have someone who canrelate.”

With that said, any speculation that Archon would continueoperating tournaments and community eventsseems plausible. In that case, Amaz’s AMA may bring theannouncement of the end, or rebranding, of Team Archon.

But at this moment, nothing is for certain with this team,as it continues it’s steep decline.
